      This drum has something to say.

      This Meinl African talking drum was carved into an hourglass shape from a solid piece of mahogany and decorated with a carved motif. The two hand-selected goatskin heads are spanned with high-quality nylon rope. Traditionally, the talking drum is played beneath one arm, and held against the ribcage. The Meinl drum is then squeezed to bend the pitch while the other hand employs an included curved striker.

      • Solid mahogany
      • Hand-selected goatskin heads linked by high quality nylon rope

      Meinl African Talking Drum

      By Chip Stern

      Comments about Meinl African Talking Drum:

      A huge dissappointment. Tubby, melodically sloppy; limited tuning range...just a piece of crap, I'm afraid. Build quality seems fine, but the sound is just lousy...uninspiring to play, because you just can't make it speak in a centered, focused, lyric manner. I can't even articulate a tonic-dominant phrase, let alone an articulate major third. Oh, well.
